i also think they should add a career mode, like total pitch manager, you decide when to overseed, give it water, what cutting pattern to mow it in. not to mention the important decisions like mowers for sale which give you the most bang for your buck. also i think it would be great to incorporate a spray painting mini games where you have to paint the adverts onto the pitch and if you go outside the lines, you fail!

that would be be awesome with the revolutionary 3d grass.

MASSIVE BRILLIANCE

CHEERS LOX AND KNOWS

I aint fazed by the bad points - i play on side cam anyways

its fitting my expectations - few tweaks, updated rosters, auto rucks (which is **** but they wont change that for decades)

The PS2 has some life in it yet - but bloody hell i want X360 version

Bring on 08

locksley do wales have their brains back? [/b]
They won't be in the game because of the French Alcohol advertising laws. Plus, if there's propper World Cup kits, the sponsors won't be on them anyway.

Yea that is a plus that the kit will be right for the world cup mode

its always a shame though to play as them or against them and not be able to have the brains logo.

maybe they should just add the 'Brawn' to their shirt or something.

Why in Fifa 07 can teams (liverpool for example) have alcohol advertisment on their kits but in the rugby games they cannot?

Proberbly the higher budget allows them to redevelop the French version, or something... :blink:

It's definately the alcohol law though, as the Scotland shirts on 06 had "TFG" written instead of Famous Grouse

I reckon everyone has different ideas who should be a star player.

I don't think Lote should be one in my own opinion. He's often put into a good position to score his tries and doesn't have a multi-facted game.

The important thing to remember is, that if you chose the star players for '08, you'd probably choose some that other people wouldn't agree with too.

No-ones going to pick star players that everyone will agree with. Out of interest why don't you tell us who the three-four star players that you'd pick for Australia are?
